Melanie Fiske is continuing in her father's footsteps. Leon Fiske began making what many knew as “Fiske’s Hoof Lotion"a medicinal remedy that he had been using on his stock for over six decades.
Before Melanie's father began making Fiske's Hoof Lotion, the product was developed and prescribed by a veterinarian in the late 1800’s. It’s purpose was to heal, treat and maintain all forms of hoof and hide ailments that animals are commonly susceptible to. Today we know it can also be effectively used as a muscle rub to relieve muscle soreness and swelling. It has been effective in healing cracked hooves and it is an effective balm to heal the skin while repelling irritating flies. Listen Melanie's interview as she recounts the origins of Fiske's Horse Care Products are where the company is headed today.
